Jeb Bush wants Rubio for VP
Miami Hearld ^ | Wednesday July 25, 2012

Posted on 07/25/2012 7:45:49 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush thinks Sen. Marco Rubio is ready to be vice president and he shared those thoughts with presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, he said Wednesday.

Bush said he has been a huge fan of Rubio's for years and hopes that Romney chooses him. He said he made his pitch to Romney in a recent conversation, but the former Massachusetts governor didn't reveal which direction he was leaning. Bush said the choice is a personal one and respects Romney for keeping his thoughts close to his vest.

Romney has said he is considering Rubio, a freshman senator who was elected in 2010.

Nooooooo!! People need wake up - Rubio has been a RINO Jeb Bush pet for years in down there in FL, he has deep ties to Romney people and the Bush family and only was considered the Tea Party choice because he was facing Charlie but is no tea partier

Jeb Bush, the RNC flying monkeys, and the Republican D. C. talking head know-it-alls with liberal brains, diarrhea of the mouth, and impacted bowel tracts.

That would be fine by me. I think he’ll pick Rubio or Martinez though.

I just think Palin gives him a guarantee, against a Hillary candidacy.

If Romney goes with a Mexican-American, yes he can mobilize a certain proportion of the voters in that segment of the voter base.

However if he nominates a female, he’s got a nominee who will take a certain percentage of EVERYONE.

Even if Hillary runs...

All the GOP needs is another RINO weak on the borders, weak on National Security, weak on terrorism....and pushed by a Bush

And, Rubio will not bring in Hispanic voters....Mexican-American, Puerto Rican-American voters are not exactly enamored of Cuban-American politicans.

Rubio means 4 more years of Obama

He’s a Hurricane. Nevertheless, he has never been able to keep his own affairs in order. Rubio owes far more on his $384,000 Miami home than it is worth. He bought the home in 2005 for $550,000 with a $495,000 mortgage. He soon had it appraised for $735,000 and took out a home equity line of credit for $135,000.

In 2008, despite earning a declared $400,000 - including his $300,000 salary from the Miami law firm Broad and Cassel - Rubio failed to pay down the principal on his home for several months, according to Florida campaign finance disclosures.

During the same period he did not pay down the balance of a $100,000-plus student loan from his days at the University of Miami, the disclosures said.

Amnesty for everyone!

Just think what President Romney and a GOP controlled Congress led by such pro-liberty stalwarts as Boehnor, McConnell, and McCain will be able to accomplish.

Hopefully Senator Rubio will be able to spearhead “comprehensive immigration reform”!

FUMR! .....a two for one in this case.

I wouldn’t mind him I don’t guess - that said - Jeb Bush needs to stay of this...and based on things he’s been saying the last few months, keep out of pretty much everything else.

He’s with Boehner against Michelle Bachman in that there’s been no islamist penetration of the US government. That ends any interest I had in Rubio.

Maybe Rubio can be VP and win Florida, then we can get him to resign before he allows another 12 million illegals in.

Marco Rubio farewell speech

Listen to this

I would kill to have Marco as VP. Even more so to have Luis Fortuño as VP. Hell, I would rather have Rubio/Romney rather than Romney/Rubio.

But we need this guy. Listen to him.

I like Rubio, but not because Jeb thinks he is dandy.

Rubio is an appealing conservative who would make a great VP.

“The American Conservative Union (ACU), America’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative group, announced today that U.S. Senator Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) voting record earned him a perfect “100” based on its 2011 Congressional Scorecard. This puts Rubio among just nine Senators with a score of 100 and earned him the title of “Defender of Liberty.” http://www.rubio.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/press-releases?ID=14338e76-6db7-4739-b4b8-fed4564b6022

I thought Rubio is not a natural born US citizen, thus is disqualified.

Mitt might even select Hillary Clinton as his VP.
Why not openly go for the gusto?
We all managed to pretend that it does not really matter that the current POTUS is not a natural born citizen.
Obama is the Democrat incumbent
Romney is the presumptive Republican candidate for POTUS.

That a huge number of USA citizens don't even bother to register to vote, or even pretend to claim they voted in elections, is mind boggling.
Unless you look closely at the results of elections.

Romney or Obama in 2012.

That's our “choice”?

Wait a minute: You say F. U. to a successful, former Governor.... you discredit a young, Cuban U.S. Senator who has accomplished more than you will ever accomplish in your lifetime and you tell me to “bite” you because someone insulted your friggin’ football team, and THEN YOU TALK ABOUT CREDIBILITY?

You need to get your priorities straight.
